TOM & JO CAWDELL
There are a number of big ticket items
... with wedding planning and photography is one of them. Both Tom and I are not huge fans of having our picture taken and were nervous about choosing a photographer, handing over the money before the day itself and not loving the end result.
Unless you have a recommendation from family or a close friend it is a minefield of options when you google wedding photography within your county. You can go to wedding fayres to pick up ideas and speak to photographers but until you have a one-to-one meeting it’s difficult to gauge whether you truly get on and whether they have picked up on the idea you have in your mind.
Our worry was completely blown out of the water by Sarah – she oozes passion, creativity, calmness and professionalism.
We had actually chosen a different photographer...
... but we were unhappy with his approach to our wedding photography so we forfeited the deposit to find someone who would be more compatible.
I had created a Pinterest board of images I liked and all the ones I had pinned from Woburn were taken by Sarah. When we went on her website it was obvious that her approach and creativity was exactly what we had been looking for all along.
We had a meeting to discuss our wedding with Sarah and both left knowing that she would be our photographer. She had great ideas for photos with the younger members of our wedding party, she took on board our preference for a more modern approach to group photos and elaborated on it.
You most certainly get what you pay for and we have many treasured memories in our photos.
Tom said his favourite part of the whole experience was the way that Sarah made us both feel so relaxed. For me I think it was seeing our photos for the first time. Any nervousness we had completely melted away and we both got to see elements of the day we hadn’t directly experienced.
If you want spectacular photos that are classic and elegant, full of love and with a personable modern approach then you need Sarah as your photographer. Without a shadow of a doubt I would recommend Sarah.
It may seem like a lot of money but it is truly the best money we have ever spent.
